 Loma, a.k.a. Vasiliy “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko, (14-1) is one of an elite group of the most respected and feared active boxers, and the defending WBA Super, WBC Franchise, WBO and The Ring Lightweight Champion. The Ukrainian Lomachenko has been a decorated boxer from his very beginning with an epic 396-1 amateur career. Loma won boxing Gold at both the Beijing and London Olympics, along with two amateur World Championships in 2009 and 2011.

Loma is well known for his footwork, and he controls opponents in the ring with moves that look like dancing because he spent years training in dance in his youth. As a boxer, Loma is a southpaw with an incredibly crisp and technical style. His approach to fights has been compared to a supercomputer, where he analyzes his opponents every move, creates a game plan in ring and then fights to set up one specific move or combination where he has the advantage. Much will be made of his size disadvantage to López, but Loma is the favorite because of his terminator-like ability to adapt then destroy new opponents.

Lopez, a.k.a. Teófimo “El Brooklyn” López Jr. (15-0) is the IBF Lightweight Champion, and he’s been rocketing up the boxing rankings as he extends his undefeated record further and further. López has quite a lot in common with Loma, starting with both fighters having faers who were involved in boxing. Like Loma, López’s father trained him at an early age, and López also competed as an Olympian during his amateur career. He may not have won the Gold medals of his opponent, but López did win the 2015 National Golden Gloves.

López is an exciting fighter and a showman, and his power in the ring is matched by his excitement after his wins. López does study and break down his opponents, but instead of needing patience to setup one sequence, he finds openings to overwhelm foes with his powerful right hand. Twelve of his 15 wins have come via knockout, including his fight against Richard Commey that won him the IBF championship. Lopez punctuates victories with dances and backflips in the ring, as well as the occasional costume change. If he wins and becomes the unified champion, López is sure to have a spectacular celebration planned out.
